Laminate Wood Flooring

Laminate wood flooring has a photographic layer of material that is made to resemble the wood. This photographic layer is glued onto a high density fiber (HDF) which comprises most of the board. The photographic layer can be made to resemble any style of wood flooring; pine, maple, oak, cherry, etc.

Laminate Flooring vs. Wood Flooring

Installing laminate flooring does have some very distinct advantages.

First of all and the biggest reason laminate flooring’s popularity, it is cost effective. It is much cheaper than hardwood flooring and engineered flooring. How much cheaper? It can be as much as one third to one half the price of hardwood flooring and engineered flooring. If you are on a budget then installing laminate flooring may be something you want to consider.

Second, laminate flooring is durable. Most laminate flooring is scratch resistant. It is not, by any means scratch proof. You will still need to put felt pads on those kitchen chairs. Still, it can last for decades depending on how much foot traffic it endures.

Third, laminate flooring is more resistant to moisture than wood. It can be advantageous to install laminate flooring rather than hardwood floors when the environment has high moisture content. Basements, kitchen, and bathrooms may do well with laminate floors. With hardwood floors, the wood expands and contracts when exposed to moisture. Over time, cracks between the floor boards can appear. Laminate flooring is much less prone to this occurrence.
